Circuit Breaker Fuse Replacement, Service, and Repair in Lowell

A circuit breaker is a type of electrical switch that is designed to protect your home and your electrical system from taking damage caused by too much current running through it. When the breaker detects that there is too much current, it will shut down the flow of electricity to your home.

A fuse has a similar function, though it must be replaced after the device is triggered, whereas a breaker can be reset back to normal function. Both these devices play an important role in the safety of your home electrical system, and bringing in a Lowell breaker panel electrician can help you to ensure that they are expertly maintained.

What Causes a Breaker to Trip?

As you may already know if yours trips frequently, circuit breakers are usually located in the basement, garage, or exterior walls of your home. Resetting a tripped breaker repeatedly tends to be extremely annoying, but why does this happen? If tripped breakers are a problem you are tired of facing, pay attention to your electrical habits, and look for the signs that it’s time to call an experienced electrician.

There are three main reasons a breaker trips or a fuse blows:

  • An overloaded circuit: 
    • This is the most common cause for a tripped breaker and simply means that you have too many things pulling electricity on a single circuit at the same time. Consider unplugging some of the devices in the room said circuit is powering if this happens to you.
  • A short circuit: 
    • This happens when a “hot” wire touches either a neutral wire or another “hot” wire. It is important to call an electrician if a short circuit occurs in your home.
  • A ground fault: 
    • This occurs when a “hot” wire comes in contact with the ground wire. The good news is that with a ground fault circuit interrupter, you can usually prevent this problem from happening.

Should I  DIY My Breaker or Fuse Issues?

In all the cases mentioned above, there is potential for dangerous electrical fires or other hazards. That’s why it’s better to be safe than sorry, and call an electrician if you are experiencing breaker issues. Remember, DIY electrical work is dangerous, and any problems with your circuit breaker should be handled by a professional.
